MRU Bursary Program

As part of our commitment the Calgary Police Half Marathon has donated $100,000 to the Mount Royal University Bursary program since 2000. Bursaries are awarded to students in the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Health and Physical Education and Social Work programs. Bursaries are awarded yearly on a financial and/or academic basis.

Our bursaries help students in their academic pursuits as evidenced in a letter we recently received…

Dear Calgary Police Half Marathon,

I would like to express my gratitude for receiving the Health & Community Studies Calgary Police Half Marathon Bursary.

This award means a little less worrying about student loans and instead focusing more on my education. I am a first year social work student about to begin my second semester at Mount Royal University. I am passionate about the helping profession, and this semester I am particularly thrilled to begin my first practicum as well as take more courses towards my diploma. I feel like I have found my place within Mount Royal University and your award definitely gave me extra encouragement for continuing to thrive academically.

Once again, thank you for the generous award.
